Cornwall is a county full of people who love to be outdoors, appreciating the beautiful, wild and inspiring surroundings. Positioned in the pretty village of Mawgan-in-Meneage between the Helford River and the magnificent Trelowarren Estate, the Stable Cottages at Glebe Hall make an excellent launch pad for exploring this very special part of Cornwall.
Glebe Hall was originally the Coach House to the Old Rectory next door, while the cottages have been converted from the former Georgian stables. Set above a secluded wooded valley near the head of Mawgan Creek, on our doorstep lies an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Quiet creeks, woodland walks, sandy coves and great watersports await.
Walk through the woods to Mawgan Creek, and up to Gear Farm (for one of their famous pasties or sausage rolls) and on through ancient woodlands to Tremayne Quay, or wander in to the heart of the neighbouring Trelowarren Estate for some of the best food you will find anywhere in Cornwall in the New Yard Restaurant. Head over to Frenchman's Creek and Helford, stopping at Gwella Farm for their artisan ice cream. In the summer, get down to Gweek on Wednesday evenings to listen to the Gweek Silver Band while enjoying Rosvear's fish and chips on the riverbank. Once you are at Glebe Hall, you won't need to go very far to unwind.
There's a heated pool in the main garden, perfect for an early morning dip or lounging around in the afternoon reading a book.
Wet weather? Then beat it with a table tennis match. Or perhaps borrow a book, DVD or game from the library to take to your cottage.
Stroll down through the woods to nearby Mawgan Creek, a tributary of the Helford River
Just outside your front door, the perfect place to BBQ, have breakfast or read the paper in the sun.
A holiday is not the time for chores, but if you do need to then there are two washing machines and a tumble dryer in the laundry room free for use.
The wooded valley below Glebe Hall is the perfect place to lose oneself for a while.
